Kona Jake The Snake Frameset 2016
An aluminum cyclocross frame that forgoes the flash for the function and the fun
With a lightweight aluminum construct and a stable geometry, you'd be hard pressed not to take Jake The Snake with you everywhere. No, you can't wear it around your neck or feed it mice, but you can take it to the local cross race, ride and epic gravel or embark on a light weekend tour.
The 2016 alloy Jake features a polished geometry with a lower bottom bracket, slightly taller head tube and slightly shorter top tube, resulting in a bike that's steady and allows a more neutral position, while preserving the racing tradition of the platform. The head tube angle for all models corresponds to the bottom bracket drop, allowing the bike to be ridden more aggressively without fear of performing an uncontrolled superman. The slacker head tube coupled with the shorter top tube also preserve the wheelbase and make for a responsive, confident ride.
- Kona Race Light 7005 construct features thicker tubing at welds and high stress areas, and thinner tubing a low stress areas, creating a perfect balance between quickness and stiffness
- Tapered Head Tube gives more girth at the bottom of the head tube to better distribute shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing positive steering performance
- Kona Full Carbon CX Race Disc fork absorbs vibration and reduces the overall weight
- Internal cable routing prevents cable contamination while maintaining a clean aesthetic
